I'm very happy to see an upgrade of this somewhat flawed soundboard recording from 1970. Great acoustic material and some strong highlights from electric set 2.

Here's an old review of a previous source...

04-03-70 - Field House, U. of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Oh.

Electric-1: Casey Jones, China Cat> I Know You Rider, Hard To Handle, Dancin, Me & My Uncle

Acoustic: FOTD, Deep Elem, Candyman, Wake Up Little Susie> Black Peter, Uncle John, Katie Mae

Electric-2: Good Lovin, Cryptical> Drums> Other One> Cryptical> Cosmic Charlie, NFA> Lovelight> We Bid You Goodnight
first "Candyman" - also: Ken Kesey & the Merry Pranksters; The Lemon Pipers

This is a pretty kick-ass show, with some really nice little nuggets. The first-ever Candyman is followed by a great acoustic trio: Wake Up Little Susie, Black Peter and Katie Mae, with KM being just Pig on vocals and Jerry on acoustic. Great, great stuff. Electric Set 2 is where the magic happens. The post-drums Good Lovin just rips, with all of that energy carrying over into a powerful TIFTOO. A typically so-so Cosmic Charlie is followed by a sloppy but rockin NFA> Lovelight.

Highlights: China> Rider, acoustic set (especially FOTD, Deep Elem, Little Susie and Katie Mae), Good Lovin, TIFTOO

Listening to 1970-04-15 right now, which is mindblowing. Will have to check out your suggestion. Thanks

Well, Cincinnati is nice, especially the acoustic stuff, but doesn't have anything on the drums> jam> drums bit from 4/15. You might want a palette cleanser before coming back to 4/3. Static (from the monitors, perhaps) intermittently mars the sound throughout.

yea I actually heard that drums jam drums section for the first time yesterday. The other one from 4/15 is blazing hot. Pure rocking raw other one material. And the Lovelight>NFA>lovelight is a pure delight with many unique sections. An all time lovelight, IMO.
